Economics Assignment 10. Use the following diagram to calculate total consumer surplus at a price of $8 and production of 6 million meals per day. For the same equilibrium, calculate total producer surplus. Assuming price remained at$8 but production was cut to 3 million meals per day, calculate producer surplus and consumer surplus. Calculate the deadweight loss from underproduction. A. Consumer Surplus Formula = ½(base x Height) Answer: Consumer Surplus= ½(6 x 6) = 18 B . Producer Surplus Formula #1= Base x Height = 3 x 8= 24 Formula #2= 1/2 (Base x Height)= ½(3 x 5) = 7.5 Answer : Producer Surplus = 24 + 7.5= 31.5 Consumer Surplus Answer : Formula = ½( 3 x 8)= 12 C. Deadweight loss Consumer Surplus #1 – Consumer Surplus #2= Deadweight Loss Answer : 18 – 12= 6

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
